IPS display for game design and development?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I know an IPS panel would be better than my tn panel but will it really be used?

Gaming comes second, I don't care if it has input lag. All I want to know if an IPS will help with colour matching and things for game design and development?

Thanks smile.gif

P.S I can either choose between a new monitor or a Go Pro HD Hero 2 for my motorbike biggrin.gif

EDIT: if it is worth it then out of these which one would you choose?

If you want color matching, what works even better than an IPS display is a colorimeter. Look up the i1Display2 or i1Display Pro.

Monitor, but I'm biased


The IPS displays are pretty freaking awesome. The Go Pro's are cool and all, but they get boring quite quick unless you make montages of what you're doing with them.

That said, it'd look better on the IPS display as well wink.gifthumb.gif

Yes it would look better on the IPS smile.gif

I currently have 1 LED S-IPS monitor in Eyefinity with 2x non-LED S-IPS monitors (All are HP ZR22w/ZR2240w). The LED version (ZR2240w) is a lot brighter, but also has a more reddish-tone and the blacks are absolutely horrible. The non-LED (ZR22w) have more natural-tones and the blacks and colors are more spot-on.

All the listed models in that site are either S-IPS or e-IPS and are LED, so any of the LG ones would be a decent entry-level choice. If you were to spend $300~400 I would much recommend sticking to Dell or HP, since their quality is superior (not to mention their stands support height, tilt, pivot/portrait).
